Clinique Fall 2015 Products for Eyes and Brows Reviews, Photos, Swatches

The Clinique Fall 2015 Collection is all about fabulous eyes and brows. Make your eyes the centre of attention with these new releases. Mascara gets Chubby with the new Clinique Chubby Lash Fattening Mascara ($20 CAD/$17 US). This mascara does an amazing job of quickly building up and volumizing lashes. It doesn't offer much in the way of lengthening but if you are a volume girl you will love Chubby Lash. It is available in Jumbo Jet (Black) as well as four limited edition colours Portly

Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette Review, Swatches, and Looks

The Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette ($64 CAD/$54 US) is a palette that includes everything you need to create so many different smoky eye looks, and even some tame ones as well. The packaging for Naked Smoky is my favourite of all the Naked Palettes. The palette has a floating smoke pattern with the lettering in gunmetal foil. Even the back of the palette is cool. The transparent smoky plastic allows you to see through to the pans and brush within. The magnetic closure palette  feels very

Protection and Escape from the Sun No Matter Where You Are with Parasun

Being fair skinned and fair haired I do not deal well with the sun. Not only do I want to protect my skin from sun damage I also can't tolerate being out in the sun for very long before it starts making me feel ill. While a sun hat is handy for protecting your face from the sun's damaging rays it also ruins your hair. I have curly hair and the last thing I want is flat hat head! I need more than just a hat. I need SHADE! If it's a hot day with strong sun I will always search out any shade I can

Estee Lauder New Dimension Shape + Fill  Perilously Pale  - 2

Improving Facial Volume & Structure with the New Estée Lauder New Dimension Shape + Fill Serum

Sponsored The big "Four Oh" is quickly approaching, and frankly I'm not sure how I'm going to react. Rationally I don't really care how old I am. I don't think turning 40 is going to propel me into any kind of emotional crisis. But part of me knows that I may not react as rationally as I expect to. I am noticing changes as I age, and those changes are already proving challenging to my confidence level. I find gravity is beginning to take its toll, and as the elasticity and volume wanes in my

Last year's Vision of Beauty Vol. 01 Collection contained some of my all time favorite products. I am a HUGE shu uemura fan and I anticipate their new releases with bated breath. When I heard that the Fall 2015 shu uemura collection was going to be the Vision of Beauty Vol. 02 Collection I was beyond excited. Shu demur's International Artistic Director, Uchiide, was inspired by the creativity and vibrant color of street art for the shu uemura Haute Street Vision of Beauty Vol. 02 Fall 2015

Guerlain Bloom of Rose Fall 2015 Collection Rose Aux Joues Blush and KissKiss RoseLip in Pink Me Up

Today I am sharing a couple pieces from the Guerlain Bloom of Rose Fall 2015 Collection. I must say I love the new black with a hint of gold Guerlain packaging! First up we have one of the new Guerlain blushes. The Guerlain Rose Aux Joues Tender Blush ($57 CAD/$52 US) is a much softer formula than the prior version which was a bit harder in the pan. This new formula is smooth and silky and easy to pick up product. The sleek black magnetic closure case with subtle gold Guerlain logo is so

New Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick Shades for Fall 2015 Review and Swatches

The recent release of 16 new shades of Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks ($20 US/$24 CAD) has also been my first introduction to the product. I must say I'm impressed. I can see why these have become such a cult favorite. The formula is incredibly pigmented and applies so beautifully. There is no need to fuss with a lip liner. These aren't near as drying as a lot of other matte liquid lipsticks I have tried and dare I say, as long as I prep lips first with a balm, I don't find them drying

Dior Rouge Dior Lipstick in Nouvelle Femme, Continental, Unique for Fall 2015 Review & Swatches

The Dior Fall 2015 Cosmopolite Collection brings us three new limited edition shades of Rouge Dior Lipstick ($42 CAD). The full name for these lipsticks is Dior Rouge Dior Couture Colour Voluptuous Care Lipstick. Quite a mouthful isn't it? But let me tell you, these lipsticks are worth the elaborate moniker. They feel so amazingly lightweight while imparting such lush hydration to the lips. The glossy finish of these lipsticks makes lips look youthful and plump. I found these new shade editions

Pampering and Rejuvinating at Home with Indeed Labs Hydraluron, Exfoliator, and Nanoblur

Sponsored I'm not the kind of person who treats herself to a day at the spa. I think I've probably only had about 2 facials in my entire life. (OK maybe I need to work on having OTHER people in my life that treat me to a day at the spa ;P). Anyways, I guess you could say I'm a bit of a DIYer when it comes to pampering treatments. I enjoy relaxing in the comfort of my own home, with my extensive skin care routines, and a nice facial mask. It just isn't practical for me to arrange childcare and
